A group of expatriates cycling around Balikpapan, through the kampungs and forest. This video taught us scene of living in Indonesia and experienced the friendliest people on earth with their smile. To be honest, I thing those bules knows Balikpapan area more than I do

In the end of journey, the finish line is a scene of typical bars in east Balikpapan which is packed with expatriates

Hhmmm... ane juga kenal mod daerah2 yang mrk lalui... mulai turun dari pasir ridge... belok kanan.. menanjak... mengelilingi kampung daerah prapatan.. kemudian dilokasi lain sampai menuju salah satu cafe di batakan

But anyhow... good movies... buat mereka pasti menjadi pengalaman berharga saat mereka kembali ke negara mrk masing2...

Ternyata membuat mereka betah tinggal di Balikpapan tidak harus dgn ke khas-an Balikpapan... keramah tamahan warga kampung juga menyenangkan buat mereka.
